The Durrell Charity Shop reopens today, after ten weeks of being closed.
The charity shop provides a "vital source" of income for Durrell, allowing the Conservation Trust to recover threatened wildlife and revive damaged eco-systems across the world.
Durrell staff and volunteers trialled the new system and are "confident" that the shop "can provide a safe experience for everyone".
The shop will be open Tuesday through to Saturday, 9am until 1pm.
